1:15, 1:30 and 1:45 for afternoon visits.
Reservation times are available Wednesday through Saturday, plus every third Sunday.

What is there to see at Lotusland?
A series of gardens, with subtropical and tropical plants from around the world, draws the visitor from surprise to surprise on the two-hour self-guided walking tour. There will be time to visit the Garden Shop Patio at the end of your visit or shop online at LotuslandShop.org.
Children greatly enjoy visiting Lotusland and we encourage to visit as a family. Children need to be closely monitored for their safety and to protect rare plant species, historic statuary and numerous water features.
